JasperReports 3.6: Creating a Report from Relational Data

by Bilal Siddiqui | June 2010 | Cookbooks Java Open Source

This is the first part of a four-part article series which focuses on advanced things such as working with a variety of data sources: relational data, XML data, model beans of Java applications, and also multiple relational databases at once. iReport will need to access these data sources in order to generate a report. iReport uses the concept of loose coupling between data sources and report design. Loose coupling means you can design your reports independent of the type of data source used. This means the same report design can work with any data source.

Relational databases are perhaps the most popular data sources used to hold application data. This article by Bilal Siddiqui, author of JasperReports 3.6 Development Cookbook, shows how you will connect JasperReports to your database. An open source database named PostgreSQL to is used to hold the sample data. That's why in this recipe you will connect iReport with your PostgreSQL installation. This article also shows that you can connect iReport to any of the popular databases in a similar manner.
